Business owners are being urged to make an important engagement where they’ll be sure to receive a great reception.

Wedding season is fast approaching and want the best Cumbrian businesses to attend their event at the Reebok Stadium on September 14.

It is the umbrella for all wedding events organised throughout Newsquest, one of the UK’s largest newspaper distributors.

The Northwest Wedding and Venue Exhibition is designed to bring together local community businesses and ‘loved-up couples’.

Zoe Donoghue, group event manager, said: “The North West Wedding and Venue Exhibition was formed to create an affordable showcase to cater for all exhibitors’ pockets.

“Our aim is to present a top class event without the added cost that the normal large scale events bring with them.

“With a potential print and online audience of 2.6million, the culmination of all of our titles working together on one North West Exhibition seems the perfect platform to bring together local communities with the local businesses that are on their doorstep.

“Many of our exhibitors have been loyal for many years, we listen to what they want and adapt our shows accordingly on the feedback provided.

We aim to provide the best service for both our exhibitors and our visitors.”

More than 100 Cumbrian photographers, registrars, venues and wedding planners have already signed-up to the event.

Annabel Candler, owner of North Cumbria-based Weddings by Annabel, said: “This show appealed to us because it’s a great way to chat with lovely couples who would love to marry in Cumbria and the Lake District but feel it’s a bit too far or too stressful.

“I am available to chat throughout the day about anything from photography, suits, flowers, time plans and share my top recommendations.

“The Registrars know all the best places to marry and can really help with the important legal side of things.

“It should be a fantastic day and we can’t wait to meet everyone!”
